Hit a home run with Hervey Bay
A NEW softball program is adding a splash of colour to Hervey Bay's softball diamonds.
Any child 10 years or younger who registers for the Simple Softball program will receive one of four different coloured gloves and a ball.
The seven-week development scheme provides participants with an introduction to the spor,focusing on learning the game and the skills of softball through fun group activities.
Hervey Bay Softball vice-president Damien Maahs said the association has already had a good response.
"Most of the kids are new to the game and have never played any sport whatsoever," he said.
"It's a great way for them to learn the game while having some fun.
"After seven weeks they have the option to play in a team and play T-ball."

- Program runs over seven sessions from 8-9am each Saturday between October 13 and November 24 at Hervey Bay softball grounds on Raward Rd, Torquay
